Right. I think the closest you'll get for resetting chunks of text in a
set the textstyle of char 1 to -1 of fld x to "plain"
Then reset any other styling. Or do what Jacques suggests and just plunk
the field contents back into the field, which will remove all styling in
one fell swoop. If you want all the field text to be bold, of course,
you can set the textstyle of the field itself to that.
I'm not sure how there could be a field-based property that works
directly with chunks of the field text. Characters have their own
styling properties independent of the field's. If no character-based
styling exists in a chunk, then the text inherits it all the way up the
